Memorandum on the European Parliament’s discharge resolution regarding the 2012 EU accounts


The memorandum provides a review of the European Parliament’s final approval of the EU accounts for 2012. The European Parliament decided to approve the accounts, but noted with regret that the error rate had gone up for the third consecutive year and had reservations concerning the agricultural and regional policy areas.

The discharge of the accounts is accompanied by extensive comments by the European Parliament to the accounts and the administration of EU funds by the European Commission and the member states. The memorandum highlights the comments that Rigsrevisio­­nen considers most important and of particular interest to the Danish Public Accounts Committee, i.e.

  • targeted control;
  • strengthened internal and external audit;
  • national declarations on the management of EU funds.

The last sections of the memorandum update the Public Accounts Committee on Rigsrevisionen’s cooperation with the European Court of Auditors and Supreme Audit Institutions in the member states.
